This is a classic boulder and a must if in the area. There are many problems on this boulder. It has good warm-up problems that get you ready for the rest of the area on the east face and, of course, the classic, sloper lowball - Chinese Algebra on the west face.

Getting There 

From the parking area, head through the green gate (make sure to close) and down. Coming to a creek - cross it (it's easy) - and head up to a path that parallels the creek. Head down (S) the path passing a few large boulders, with some easy highball problems on it, eventually hitting somewhat of a clearing - allowing a view of a set of big boulders spaced about a hundred yards apart from each other. The first one that you hit is the Mecca Boulder.

Heel hook and continue to slap up the rail with that left hand until you think you can stick that right hand on and contain it. Stick it and figure out a way to get up and over the bulge. As does with most sloper problems - temperatures can make or break you. Easier come winter time, harder in the heat o...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
